||Recombinant full-length human PAK1 was expressed bybaculovirusinSf9 insect cellsusing an N-terminal GST tag. MW=96 kDa.
||PAK1 is a member of the p21-activated kinases (PAKs) which have been implicated in the regulation of cell morphology, motility and transformation. These serine/threonine kinases are activated by and are effectors of small GTPases, CDC42 and RAC. PAK1 belongs to the Group I PAKs which also includes PAK2 and PAK3. PAK1 is a key regulator of the actin cytoskeleton, adhesion and cell motility. Inactive dimeric PAK1 is mainly cytosolic and interaction with the activators Cdc42-GTP and Rac1-GTP stimulates the kinase at the sites of cellular protrusions forming adhesions to the extracellular matrix.

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at –70oC. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
